A Richjusa Rock Climbing
This zone has absolutely amazing granite with nine separate sectors according to the guide book Falaises de Corse. Unfortunately for me, I only had the great pleasure of climbing at one of the sectors. Most of the crags face either west or south. The zone is found in a nature reserve and I can imagine that is a bustling place in peak season. Canyoneering seems to be a favored activity in addition to hiking and climbing. I suspect that one could climb here at any time of year but the shoulder seasons are perhaps the most amenable for sending.
The sectors or crags are along two water courses: Gravona and the Cardiccia.
Gravona sectors include:
Leccia Rossa has approximately beginners routes in the 3c to 6a range
Democrazia has two dozen routes divided between four distinct crags with ratings in the 5b to 6b range
L'ultima sits above and left of the Democrazia sector and possesses about 18 routes in the 4b to 6a+ range
Cardiccia sectors include:
La source is a lovely zone to hang out and climb. approximately 20 routes in the 4c to 7a range. This may have the longest routes in all the A Richjusa area.
Ozone has seven climbs from 5a to 7b+
Les toits hosts the most challenging sport routes in the zone with climbs focused in the 6b to 7b+ range
Le chameau holds ten routes in the 4a to 7b range
Les Oiseaux has the hardest route in the entire zone at 8a+ in addition to a few other warm ups
Sempre qui holds another 8 plus a few other nice looking lines.
